A unique element of Sheshan International is the dramatic quarry that forms a hazard on the 16th and 17th holes. The 16th is a 288-yard par 4 where the choice is between a safe lay-up off the tee or a bold shot over the quarry directly at the green. The 212-yard, par-3 17th plays over the quarry, which also guards the right side of the green.

The HSBC Interactive Village featured a range of activities from Putt for the Prize, Beat the Pros and games for children to immersive experiences at sponsor booths. Pudong Shangri-La Hotel served up a wide range of top quality food and beverages at the public catering tent, complemented by premium wines at the Casillero del Diablo outlet and assorted cocktails at the Nest Bar.
